🌺 Life in the Oasis 🌴

The Light of Day


The other day, I was going through a box of knickknacks. As I was unpacking a pink ceramic “lady bug house,” I took apart the newspaper that surrounded it.

It was just one slightly brittle page of the comics section.

Based on the date, the ladybug house was packed away for thirteen years. I almost forgot I had it.

It’s a shame I had it tucked away for so long.

Now it sees the light of day. There are a lot of years to catch up on, to enjoy my little pink knickknack.

Part of this year of change for me includes going through anything and everything I have stored away.  Up to this point, a lot of boxes have been gone through, and a lot of unneeded things donated.  How much “stuff” does a person really need?

Only what’s necessary to survive and those few possessions that are either sentimental or brings in a burst of joy.

Hi, and welcome to my blog. I am a published writer, poet, photographer, freelance editor, artist, and career analyst. Growing up in a bilingual family helped me foster my love of languages. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Political Science, a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, and Master of Arts in History. My short stories, poetry, and photographs have been published in the Emerald Coast Review (18th and 19th editions), newspapers, and in many other publications. I enjoy Pre-Code films, photography, music, travelling, history, reading, and living each day to the fullest in The Oasis. My publications include Engaged (an anthology of my poems), The Crowd of Turin, God of the Sea: A Short Book of Poetry by the Seashore, Grapes Suzette and Other Poetic Epicurean Delights, Gallery Night, Indigo Fantasy, The Green Gloves, Puppy Love, Supreme Theater, and others. I am currently working on an anthology of my short stories, including a roman à clef tale, and am in collaboration with another artist in writing a novel. My books are available through Amazon. Check them out. Buy them. Read them. Send me your thoughts. I look forward to hearing from you.

  1. We use to do this for the toys for the kids. We would give them a toy and after awhile they got bored with it. We would put it in the closet and then after a few short months take it out, rewrap it and give it as a new gift. Doing this saves money and a toy is a toy.


  2. It is such a lovely little house. I am so glad it finally came out of hiding.
